Okay so your 20 your an adult your dad is no longer incharge live your life there's lots of people out there for you. If you truely love this guy be with him and if you can't then there's a saying if you love something let it go and if it comes back to you it's forever yours!

Josephine, I am not going to lie. Life is a roller coaster. Your going to have ups and downs. Drinking does not help a sitution! Trust me. In the long run it makes things far worse. You spend money to forget, but in teh mornign the problem/situation is still going to be there. I am sorry to hear about your mother dying when you were so young. I am happy to hear that you have a great father. My father is a very controlling man. Have you ever stopped to wonder why your father is the way he is. Why is he contolling? What made him that way? Try to understand the situation as to why he is the way he is. If you can not talk to your father very well write him a letter and tell him how you feel. Make him read it infront of you or you read it to him. I know your looking at the here adn now. However you dont need a man to make you happy. Learn to make yourself happy. Do the things to make you better. Go join a gym excercise. Your body will feel better adn energized. If you go to church talk to your pastor or priest. If you dont go you still can if that is something you believe in. You have to realize that you have the power inside you to change things. :) Good luck
